• Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Hydrator

    There’s been a re-shuffle on my bathroom shelf, and Aesop’s Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Hydrator has emerged as king. While this may come as a surprise (especially considering my past declarations of moisturizer-loyalty), people (and their skin) change. And change is good. Besides, a new season is upon us, so really there isn’t a better time than the …

  • Hairspiration: Michael Douglas

    To say Michael Douglas has great hair is an understatement. Rather, I’d say he’s had a career of exceptional hair. Besides, we all can use a little inspiration from time-to-time, and what is the point of a proper Throwback Thursday really if not to inspire? That’s right dear reader, inspiration is the point.  I’ve long …

  • Aesop’s Great Breath

    If Kim Kardashian’s sixth sense is an ability to ‘smell cavities’, surely she would recommend Aesop’s new mouthwash. Why? It’s pretty great.

And yes there is method to my moisturizing madness, sub-arctic eye spooning sessions (!) and bizarre application techniques. But honestly after all is said (and done) I just feel great. So in light of that revelation I thought we …

  • Locked Up

    Ok so I didn’t actually get locked-up over the Christmas break. But if ever I were to be locked-away, please oh-please use this Hermès contraption. As we are well aware nothing signifies pure, unadulterated luxury more than absolutely anything Hermès – this limited edition refillable atomizer is the perfect example.   Modeled after the iconic ‘H’ padlock, the …

  • Monday Moisturizer

    We have all heard whispers of the famous Creme de la Mer, its miraculous moisture and of-course how J.Lo supposedly smothers her entire body in the stuff. Sure its price range makes it exclusive, even aspirational – but something so coveted must boast miraculous benefits. I say yes, because on this topic I know my …

  • Sweet Smoke

    Gifting fragrance has always been entirely hit-or-miss. Let’s face it, people get personal about their ‘signature’ scent – making it near impossible to successfully gift (even if you love it and are convinced they will too).    All I have to say is thank god for Tom Ford’s Private Blend collection. I was recently given …
